Matt Bitner Games

Founded in 2016, Matt Bitner Games consists of Matt Bitner and his wife, Kayla. Matt wanted to create video games from the first time he played Doom on his dad’s old 486. Inspired by the classics, he built his knowledge from the ground up in order to create a roguelike Metroidvania that captured the wonder of retro games. Matt decided to become a solo developer, dedicating himself to his first title — A Robot Named Fight! In ARNF, players assume the role of a lone robot tasked with finding ancient relics of war to grow more powerful and defeat The Megabeast. The game features procedurally generated levels with endless maps and item combinations, local co-op, and a newly-added 4-way local deathmatch mode.
